Content Description: (also see the Calendar)
Computer graphics provides the tools to model mostly 2D and 3D data and processes, to generate photo-realistic (or at least believable) or artistic renderings of the models, to interact with them through graphical user interfaces, and to create visualizations and animations for communication, education and entertainment. This course offers an introduction to the modeling and rendering aspects of computer graphics. The mathematical concepts and techniques behind the development of various computer graphics algorithms will be covered. You will also learn to implement some of these algorithms through programming assignments using OpenGL.
Prerequisites:
CMPT 225 and MATH 232 or 240.
